Question about Ford Mustang

1 Answer

I own a 2004 - 40th Anniversary Limited Edition Mustang Convertible which is in pristine condition. It is a 6 cylinder standard 3.5 I recently bought a set of high powered bulbs for my headlights, The stock headlights are rectangular lights that have the signal lights build into the headlight unit and the entire apparatus is held in place by two slot pins in each light. I replaced the bulbs with the high powered ones I purchased but find that when lights are turned on, they shine straight out and do not shine onto roadway in front of the car. I need to know how to adjust the lights so I can get the low beam to shine onto the road approximately 20 feet in front of the car. I have looked for an adjustment near the lights but can find nothing with which to adjust the up/down level of the lights. The way they are right now, the headlights are totally useless as I cannot see the road in front of car. I need to get the low beam to shine onto roadway so I can see. I sure hope you can help, or if not can you suggest where I can look to find the needed info that I require.

Hi, 1999 - 2004 Mustangs have fixed headlight modules with only one adjustment. There is no way to adjust side to side (horizontal plane). That adjustment is supposedly accomplished by locking the headlamp fixture into the body with two slide lock pins. Open the hood and look at the upper end of the headlight module. There will be two black metal tabs (one at each side of the headlight module). By pulling these pins straight up they may be removed, thereby freeing the headlight module from its' mounts. The headlight module may now be gently pulled toward the front of the vehicle. Disconnecting the headlamp wire and the side marker wire will allow the entire headlight module to be removed from the vehicle. Installation is the reverse of these steps. The sole adjustment for a headlight module is to adjust the up - and - down (vertical plane). This is accomplished by inserting the appropriate sized allen wrench into the allen screw at the inboard side (toward the center of the car) on each headlight module.
Warning: the adjustment mechanism is made of high impact plastic rather than metal. Care should be used with inserting and turning the allen wrench. Turning the allen screw clockwise raises the light beam; turning counterclockwise lowers the light beam. There is a good article on headlight aiming at this LINK

Convertible top won't go back up, can you help?

IT is probably a fuse. Does it work at all? my mustang had a busted cylinder and only 1 side would go up. If it doesnt work at all then check your fuses. With no manual you will have to use a flashlight and shine on them and see if one is blown. IF they all look good then I would go buy a testlight for about $10 and manually check the fuses for power. It oculd be the motor, however that will cost you several hundred dollars and that is if you install it yourself.

Replaced brake pads 99 Mustang 35th Ann now they are locking up

you have either calipers hanging up or the lines are separated on the inside causing the fluid to not be released back after application of the brakes.. to test... remove the caliper on the pass side first (farther from master cylinder) and slowly try to push the piston in using a c-clamp.. if it doesnt go in SMOOTH then crack the bleeder screw, and try again, if it goes in just fine its the line.. if it goes in the first time fine then go to the other side and try it. if one of them DOESNT go in fine with the bleeder broke open you need calipers (very common) and then you will need to bleed the brakes and make sure to start on the side farthest from the master cylinder i.e pass side
